I found a good ID Bore mic a couple days ago and was able to strike a great deal on it. I got it for $50.00 out the door, been watching for one since I lost my old one in the break in a few years ago. I've been getting by using snap gages and OD mics until now. It's a Fowler 4"-12" ID mic.

Bore gauge is on my list of things needed. I got a K321 for my uncle to rebuild and then that tecumseh on the side tag is going to get rebuilt in the winter.

I went to harbor freight and got a couple of tire irons today to help with installing the rear tire tubes on the SS15.

I needed another right angle drill since my on Makita 12v finally gave up last year. So I went to looking around and unless I wanted to spend over $300.00 for a Milwaukee I was out of luck. I did finally find that Rigid makes a tool called a JobMax that will accept different tool heads, it comes with one of those isolating saw heads. I also bought the 3/8" right angle drill head for it. Total was just under $100.00 out the door and it uses the same 18v batteries that all my other Rigid cordless tools use. Home Depot also had the Rigid 18v work light on sale so I got one of those also.

Bought a new trouble light at Harbor Freight the other day after I saw a guy on youtube using one. Now I'm going back to get another one I use it so often! It's the only light I've ever owned that I can actually put exactly where I need it on a vehicle (as long as the surface is ferrous) and have it stay there. Uses a standard 18650 lithium rechargeable battery which is removable for charging. Love this thing.

My 10L (about 2 1/2 gallons) sonic cleaner arrived this morning.  I cleaned my twin motorcycle carbs at the same time, so I didn't have to mess with the links between them.  I gotta say, I wouldn't have been happy with one any smaller being I upgraded from my small 2 1/2L Harbor Freight model.  This things worked great, and the heater function shut off when it reached my preset temp, plus this machine has a timer that will allow way more cleaning time without shutting off or resetting.   The HF would only do 8 minutes at a time. 

 Water was black when finished cleaning.   Love this outfit!  Used scrap steel money to get it.

No new tools just additional boxes to put the tools. I bought the side locker a couple of weeks ago, just got to putting it together and on the side today. 100_0562.JPG . I ended up buying another 2 drawer center section today. Menards had them on sale for $69100_0561.JPG Now to just do some rearranging .  sorry the pictures are blurry.

Just got me a new "Nut Buster" in the mail today.  I need this to take down all the cow freestall loops much easier than wrenches.  Due to some sawdust still in the stalls, it's not safe to use oxy torch or even an angle grinder to cut the bolts off.   I can't even use my cordless impacts, as the bolts are carriage head into wood, and with the corrosion on the threads, I know the bolts will spin in the wood.

It's probably nothing new to anyone, but I finally broke down and got on of those combination drill bit/countersink and Phillips screwdriver attachments for my cordless drill. What a time saver.

I just ordered one of these. Should help with working on the tractors. Best part is FREE shipping right now on it (online only).
